Some sad news ...

It is with great sadness that we make this announcement that our very dear friend Margaret (a founding member of St. Ives Textiles) passed away on 6th September following a short illness.

As a group, and individually as very close friends of Margaret, we were shocked and saddened by the news and felt unable to go ahead with our show so soon afterwards.

Margaret was such a lovely, kind and generous lady, a very talented and inspiring textile artist, she loved being a part of our group from the start and generously  gave of her time to the group, gently guiding us all and generously sharing ideas, tips and techniques.  We all loved her very much and she will remain in our hearts forever.

When the time is right, and in tribute to Margaret, we hope to hold an exhibition of all the work we have created this year.  This will include some of Margaret’s work, with the kind permission of her husband.  We will keep you all updated, as and when, with news on that.

Thank you all for your understanding at this difficult time.
